Time to see behind the curtain, America. Donald Trump is about to start a war… just in time for the election.
On Veteran’s Day weekend, Trump skipped a tribute to America’s war dead because of a light rain. This by a president who had avoided military service in Vietnam, claiming to suffer from “bone spurs.”

By most yardsticks, our nation seems to be going backwards: We have a billionaire president that shows no hesitation to making claims that are patently false. We have deepened the gap between rich and poor, made healthcare and college education further out of reach, eliminated environmental protections, and gave hefty tax breaks to the ultra wealthy. Here is a bit of this turbulent year in photos.
